replace shutdown command with your command, i.e. path to your suspend script.
or you can use a button from your remote to run suspend with irexec.

your script should just run this:
# rmmod module1 module2 ....
echo mem >/sys/power/state

if it does not work, check the logs and remove the modules (which are
causing problems) before the command from above.

If you have more hardware in your myth system, there are probably more
problems. I have 3 tv-tuners and they just stop working after waking
up from suspend.
